STREET OF HEAVEN
Lisa Steele and Kim Tomczak
80 Bloor St. W, lower concourse, Suite C1
October 26, 2011 – February 18, 2012

There is a myth about Yonge Street as being the longest street in the world. The reality is still impressive. Stretching from the shores of Lake Ontario through the various “downtowns” and crossroads of Toronto, through York region, Richmond Hill, Aurora, Newmarket, the Oak Ridges Moraine, traversing the Holland Marsh and ending, finally, just south of Lake Simcoe, Yonge Street is, in fact, 58 km in length. Street of Heaven is a machine-made work of embroidery depicting the impressive topography of this landmark. Based on a digital satellite image, the dense cityscape gives way to the countryside with Yonge Street itself embroidered in gold thread.

A solo exhibition of new work by Alea Drain
Showing: Nov 30 – Dec 22, 2011
Opening Reception: Thursday December 1, 7-10pm

Alea Drain’s work on Japanese washi paper is anything but conventional. With a sewing machine as her drawing medium, strange landscapes and creatures come to life in surprising and playful ways. Clever use of color adds to these mysterious worlds, held within the light boxes she builds to contain them.
